All orchids have certain needs and some of these needs are the right amount of water, fertilizer, the proper amount of light, the right temperature, (not too hot but not too cold).
They also need a certain amount of humidity and air movement.
You should re-pot orchids about ever year and in the correct type of media that has bark, coconut husk chips, diatomite, charcoal and perlite in it. This will provide your orchid with good drainage and air circulation.
Just remember your media should be loose and drain well. Do not use regular soil. A sure fire way to kill an orchid is to over water it. If the leaves start to turn yellow this could be a sign of over watering. A sign of under watering is the leaves will start to wrinkle which means you need to provide them with more water when you do your watering.
As you can see caring for orchids is not that hard at all and if you spend a few minutes each day providing the correct care you will be amazed at how low maintenance they are.
